CPS Loop Office, Garden level, board room
You have the option to document this meeting in person or remotely, via live stream. Please note that Chicago Board of Education meetings run relatively long (the assignment end time is an estimate based on past meetings’ duration).
If you attend the meeting in person, an additional hour will be added to your pay for this assignment. The meeting will be held at Chicago Public Schools Headquarters (42 W. Madison St., Garden Level, board room). Take a photo to let us know you were there. Please note that the CPS board room frequently reaches attendee capacity, in which case overflow attendees are seated in a different room to view a video broadcast.
If you plan to document remotely, the meeting will be live-streamed at https://www.youtube.com/@ChiPubSchools/streams. The live stream may not appear until or a few minutes after the scheduled start time. If you don’t see it right away, give it a few seconds, then try refreshing your Internet tab to see if it loads. Check the “videos” tab as well.
- As of this writing, the agenda has not been officially set, but you can get an idea of it from this document (agenda for meeting where they will be deciding what goes on the board meeting agenda).
- Slide decks and documents discussed during the meeting will eventually be linked at https://www.cpsboe.org/meetings/past-meetings.

Chicago Public Schools
The Chicago Board of Education is charged with governing the Chicago Public Schools (CPS), setting policies, governing operations, and charting the direction of current and future programs.
A list of board members (with headshots) is here. Board members are currently appointed by the mayor. In 2021, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signed a bill into law that will gradually transition to a 21-member elected school board over the course of 2024-2027.
